supply of hundreds of thousands of people. finally we must be mindful of the environment. first we operate in a time of severe budget constraints. as secretary of the department of homeland security, i therefore believe i am obligated to identify and eliminate inefficiencies, waste and unnecessary duplications of resources across the large and de-centralized bureaucracy, while pursuing important missions such as the recapitalization of the aging coast guard fleet. second, i am mindful of the surveys that reflect that morale is low. i intend to constantly remind our work force of the critical importance of their homeland security mission and that the department's greatest asset in pursuit of these mission is his our people. i will be a champion for the men and women of d.h.s., and i will advocate on their behalf. i look forward to working with this committee. the chairman is correct that i am actively working to fill the vacancies in senior management positions. i do that on a daily basis, and i look forward to a shared vision and a partnership with congress on our important mission

and greenpeace cofounder patrick moore. he made these comments before the senate environment and public works committee. he left greenpeace because he says that group became more interested in politics than the environment. what an announcement from him. >>> men who wait too long to become fathers could put their children at greater risk of developing mental health problems. that's according to a new study that followed more than 2.5 million men for 25 years. researchers found a child born to a 45-year-old father compared to a 24-year-old dad was three times more likely to have autism, 13 times more likely to have adhd, 25 times more likely to be bipolar and twice as likely to have schizophrenia. this is video you have to see to believe. two guys in those wing suits flying past christ the redeemer statue in britain. look at this. the two daredevils making that jump from about 6,500 feet. they landed safely. and what was the first thing they did? what do you think? what do you think? >> they prayed. >> drank a beer. look at that. >> they earned it. >> how close they get. nerve wracking. see yo
this plan by hager does not accurately reflect the security environment. roy blunt, it has the potential to harm america's readiness. we're not likely to see the knock-down, drag-out fight. remember the sequester was supposed to be the stick that would force republicans and some democrats to negotiate a grand bargain. but as we saw, many republicans looked over the edge of the cliff and said, you know what, sequester not so bad. in fact, some conservatives support the sequester, for imposing cuts that congress wouldn't have had the stomach to put in place otherwise, and for republicans, some conservatives who are putting fiscal responsibility near the top of their priority list, this may be a question of picking your poison. now, according to south carolina governor nikki haley, president obama delivered that message pretty bluntly when he spoke to republican governors at the chamber of commerce -- she was at the chamber of commerce, but this is what he said, according to her, when they met at the white house. >> the tone completely changed when we started talking about the national guar
experts say that's possible. but what if something in the environment is the culprit. state health officials have found nothing so far. you would think they would be working around the clock trying to find an answer talking to every single mom who's lost a baby. they're not and outrage is growing. here's senior correspondent elizabeth cohen. >> reporter: in the rural and fertile yakima valley, an alarming number of babies born with birth defects. anencephaly, babies born with much of their brain and skull missing. >> i was stunned. three in a couple month period of time. that's unheard of. they are such tragic, terrible outcomes. >> reporter: barron's shocking discovery prompted an investigation by the state health department, which showed that in three counties in a three-year period there were 23 cases of anencephaly, a rate four times the national average. what could be causing such a high rate here? is it just a coincidence or something more serious? this epidemiologist at the washington state health department conducted the investigation. >> did you find an answer? >> we have

that are more adapted to those environments to succeed. >> reporter: if you think it's just a central valley problem, think again. >> large dust cloud -- >> reporter: in december 1977, california was in the middle of a major drought. strong winds near bakersfield scoured the topsoil creating a huge dust storm. it shut down highways, top tom delay utility towers, damaged property and killed livestock, tolled utility towers. it spread hundreds of miles as far as sacramento. >> that topsoil came here and dumped everywhere. >> reporter: in that topsoil, valley fever spores. dr. flynn was on duty at a sacramento hospital. >> we experienced several hundred case of cocci here in sacramento from that dust storm. >> it killed 6. and spores can now be found in chico and redding. as for lauer -- >> something in the air. >> reporter: all it takes is a gust of wind. sharon chin, kpix 5. >> a few cases of valley fever were reported in the bay area in the 1970s. the symptoms are pretty common, similar to a cold or flu. sometimes they include a rash. >>> bye-bye barge. the mysterious google barge is leavin
everybody else. and this makes for a very toxic environment. i think for everybody going into november. bill: you agree. >> absolutely agreeing. in fact that is one of the reasons why the obama administration are positioning themselves on the side of the people for fairness, for redistribution against the republican party, bill, that has no narrative. that has no arguement. that just says no. bill: back on this poll, quickly. 25% of the democrats expressed that disappointment. >> i think they should. bill: are they disappointed in him and his policies or think he is not liberal enough. >> some say he is not liberal enough. others say they are disappointed in his policies or result of his policies. the fact that there is gridlock and no progress. bill: thanks to both of you. >> thank you. bill: 40% of independents are not happy. >> right. bill: that is really -- >> harbinger of ill for the administration. bill: thank you, doug. thank you, monica. what's next, martha? martha: coming up the poet giving a kiss to a little admirer. why the pontiff's mini-me caused quite a sensation in st. peter's
party in midterm election and the exception was the 2002 in the post-9/11 environment. the buck is going to stop with the incumbent party in power because america is not happy. i think quite likely the outcome the republicans keep the house and a possibility the republicans will pick up the senate even losing mitch mcconnell's seat. we have to be divided again until 2016. it is an opportunity for the republicans to put together a proactive message. i think it's a good time to be talking about our plans for the future in 2016. >> donny, you can look individually at the president and the way congress is viewed but take this all in tolg totta. 80% are angry or dissatisfied with the way things are going in washington. it's and old theme at this point. we see it in just about every poll. as robert said this is a pox on both houses. >> it's only three-point spread i think between the democrats and the republicans both on the negative side. statistically, not a big issue. i actually think that this is going to be a case of best human being wins a race. i think one could give an argument -- joe,
that creates an environment where investment and innovation and competition can thrive, the american people benefit. we've seen it in the wireless industry, we're seeing it in the broadband industry and the story of the media marketplace over the last 40 years since we last adopted our media rules has been one where competition has flourished. i think that's something the fcc would do well to remember when it steps into this marketplace. >> i'll tell you, sir, i mean i'm glad you're there and you're doing the lord's work. but whether it's broadband issues or the old fairness doctrine, the fcc is on the wrong side of every issue. you talk about innovation and entrepreneurship, you're right, god bless. the fcc on the wrong side, the ftc, all these independent agencies. i say get rid of them. >> part of the frustration that you have with agency comes into sharp relief when it comes to the media because we do have a core first amendment freedom. so when you combine the way that the study was created with that core fcc freedom -- first amendment freedom, i think people do rightly get concerned.
school wellness guidelines to help build healthier learning environments for our kids. and as part of this effort, we'll be eliminating advertisements for unhealthy food and beverages in our schools. because i think we can all agree that our classrooms should be healthy place where is kids are no, ma'am bombard eed for ads f junk food. our second announcement focuses on school breakfast. i cannot possibly overstate how important this is. right now millions of children in this country are showing up to school hungry every day. and that's why we're expanding our school breakfast program, ensuring that nearly 9 million kids in 2,000 schools start their day with a nutritious breakfast. >> joining me now, chef and owner of kraft restaurants. tom, we have come such a long way, when you consider what michelle obama has been campaigning for. >> pretty much dent kept at bay now for other children. the message is definitely getting across. the importance of school breakfast breakfasts, it really gets them learning. there was a study done recently that kids that get breakfast, not before the
environment, policies are changing in this country in terms of the consumption of food. the importance of feeding kids a healthy breakfast. michaela, i'm not sure if you know this. let me tell you this. children who consume a healthy breakfast and who are physically active for a minimum of 30 minutes a day perform higher on mathematical tests up to 17% higher. they excel in reading. in many cases, they read at a great level higher. we call that the learning connection. the impact that eating healthy and being physically active has on performance, behavior, attendance. so my response back to you is, let's make sure we find ways for kids to be active before, during, and after the school day. as parents, it is our responsibility to make sure we are talking to our school administrators. we are making sure our kids are not going hungry when they walk into the school building and much of what the first lady is doing is making sure the kids get the proper nutrients that they can get in the school building at a minimum. >> alexis glick, thank you so much for this. you can hear the passion in h
with the veterans' bill. that's the simple truth. what i hope very much is in this extremely partisan environment the fact that we have a congress that is virtually dysfunctional. i would hope that on this issue of supporting those people who sacrifice so much for their country, supporting their families that we could for this moment, at least, rise above this absurd level of partisanship. and i hope that we will. i hope we can get some republican support for the bill. >> one final question, senator. assuming the iran sanctions part is stripped out and not part of the bill, there are some oh who are worried about the cost of these expanded benefits for u.s. military veterans, health benefits, education benefits, social service benefits, all sorts of other benefits. and they say the country can't afford that right now. to which your reply is? >> if you can't afford to take care of your veterans, don't go to war. these people are bearing the brunt of what war is about. we have a moral obligation to support them. >> simple answer to the point. senator, thanks very much for coming in. you'll keep us
not if this bill goes there you. >> in this kind of economic environment and all these businesses are putting pressure on, you're going to do the right thing and i think she did the right thing. >> i think if there was a history, particularly from the precedent of this law that i mentioned before, if there was a press didn't and history about lawsuits and so forth, she might have thought otherwise, business pressures or not. she's a very principled woman. you saw that with immigration, whether you agree with it or not. she's a very principled woman. >>> the fed is out of touch with the economy. we only have a minute or two. ken policari, i saw it, and enjoyed reading it, but didn't know what you were talking about. >> when they talk about unemployment coming down, how much better the economy is doing, and whether they're starting to withdraw, i don't net think that joe q. public feel the same way. i think there's a complete disconnect. when the fed says it, people are scratching their heads saying, what am i missing? they say they tell me everything is so great. >> there's a lot of truth to t
